The RAREST Model Car Ever Review

This thing is simply incredible! It is potentially the future for what we'll be driving. I suppose what it represents is actually quite exciting for the future and where things might be going with this kind of thing.


Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to our blog. It's Victor from the Nifeliz team here. Nifeliz's sets are not Lego but compatible.


What we have here today is an absolutely fantastic model car. First things first, we're going to learn about its details.

 

— Set details —

This one is called Nifeliz V14 Toy Car Model Building Kit. It consists of 1,512 pieces and came out in 2022. This is a modified version of the Lamborghini Terzo Millennio. On the box, this says it's recommended for ages 16 and up and as you can see, it looks very cool. So let’s not wait around. I'm just going to open it up and show you guys what's inside.

And now for the moment of truth: it is a huge package, which includes not only the pieces, but also an instruction manual, a sticker sheet, 4 wheels, a brick separator and even some extra pieces, which is really nice. Next up, I'm going to count the bags. One, two, three... thirty. In total, we have got 30 bags.

— About the Lamborghini Terzo Millennio —

The Lamborghini Terzo Millennio, meaning the third millennium, is a futuristic electric concept car introduced by Italian automobile manufacturer Lamborghini and developed in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The Terzo Millennio was unveiled in November 2017 at the EmTech conference in Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States.


This is a concept car that does not drive and its unveiling was simply a showcase of ideas, so you could say that this car has thought experiments written all over it, but the difference is that Lamborghini and MIT have genuine intention of bringing this wild beast of a creation to life, which is more than just a little bit crazy when you hear what this car will be potentially capable of.


The Terzo Millennio uses high-capacity supercapacitors in lieu of batteries, due to their more rapid storage and discharge of energy. These supercapacitors have been made to simultaneously capture and release energy to give the car an increase in performance, without having to depend on chemical reactions. Each wheel, the rims of which glow orange, contains an electric motor, so that the amount of torque can be controlled individually, making the car's stability as good as a modern Formula One car. Because there is a motor on every wheel, the car's layout would be all-wheel drive if it was functional.



— Completion —

Hey, guys. Welcome back. I finished it. This thing took me about four hours to make and I certainly enjoyed making it. Just generally speaking, that building experience was fantastic. I was learning things. I was feeling a sense of discovery all throughout. The assembly process is easy to follow. 

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

If you have no Nifeliz sets building experience, it's not going to be quick or easy to build, especially the front portion. But for me, I would much rather have a long and more difficult assembly to do. And if you have any problems in the process, you can pick a master Technic fan's brain. Rome wasn't built in a day, and you're not going to be a master Technic fan in a day. Everything in life has a learning curve. It's the same thing with learning to build a Nifeliz set. It takes time. It takes effort. And most of all, it takes patience. Slow and steady wins the race. That being said, once you get it built, it is so rewarding because this set just looks amazing. It's really special.

— Features —

Honestly I think the first thing we have to talk about when we're looking at this model car is the size. It measures over 2.6 inches or 8 centimeters high, 14.5 inches or 35 centimeters long and 7 inches or 17 centimeters wide. So obviously this 1:14 scale model is a smaller build. 

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

However, Nifeliz V14 Toy Car Model Building Kit is just an absolute masterpiece of a Technic set. Again the actual Nifeliz system was utilized for this set, you know, actually building universal ones to make more realistic cars. Therefore, as for the styling, it is definitely an outstanding kit, real similar to the actual Terzo Millennio. Plus, there are a number of fun functions to play around with. Though you can see these in large Technic sets, this is not the case with smaller builds. In fact, this 1:14 scale model is by far one of the most complicated small model cars that I have ever constructed.

Now let's dive into all of the features of of this thing.

Here we go then. First, looking at the front side, the front end is particularly impressive.

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

The sloping windshield that sweeps from the roof and the A-pillar are used to capture the unique design and shape and contours of the front half of the real vehicle that looks like it's from a plane. The sloping windshield is formed with two clear curved panels while the A-pillar is represented by a flexible tubing on either side of the windshield. That's very impressive.

In addtion, the car still inherits the modern Lamborghini design, so it has got the triangular front end where you can see a nice-looking little logo, which says BLACK BULL.

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

There are also some traditional Lamborghini elements like the y-shape you've got that you'll find all around it. So for example, you have the headlights here at the front. They're composed of three short white tubes. These tiny hidden strips are integrated into the front of the car. I think they look really neat.

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

And what's more, they are actually small strips of glow sticks and produce a green-coloured light in the darkness. The other day, I went into my room in the darkness and got a big surprise when I saw these running lights turn green on my desk.

Down lower, just like the real things, you can see right there it is equipped with a red towing eye lug on each side of the central section at the front. It looks very realistic.

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

If we look down towards the bottom here, we have the muscular protruding front. It must be sort of aerodynamic side of things. And like the actual car, it's got a very very low front splitter as well that could double as a snowplow. It is very detailed. The front of the actual Terzo Millennio has active aero, just like the Huracán. It is called Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva, assumingly active moving parts that enable it to cut through the air a little bit more cleanly. When ALA is off, the flaps inside are closed for high downforece. In the opposition, the open flaps reduce front air pressure, optimizing conditions for acceleration and top speed.

Taking a look at the sides, it's magnificent.

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

It has two side windows, one at the front end and the other on the door. They are both are composed of clear wedge plates. Each of them was shaped to fit neatly in the frame. How it is shaped here is not coincidental. It is carefully planned. You can see the window at the front end with an L-shaped top whereas there is a rectangular piece on the top of the door window. Both of them are held in place very very securely.

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

One of the most incredible features of this model car has to do with  its doors. Just like the actual car, you have the gull-wing styled doors, which is awesome.

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

In order to open the doors, there is a gear at the top that opens and closes them. And I've got to say it is very cool and a fun function to play around with.

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

Underneath the door, you've got the Tricolore stripe there, represented by the red, white and green tiles. They certainly seem real.

I like the way that they've done the fenders. I especially love the wider wheel arches or fenders at the front. It is really clever part usage. It's a perfect mix of an arch with a curved top, tiles, cheese wedges and stuff like that along with a flexible tubing. And there is no contact between the fender and wheel.

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

The curve of the rear fender matches the the curve of the tire perfectly, leaving little more than a paper-thin gap in between.


And then, if you look down towards the wheels here, you'll notice they are impressive. Like those on the real Terzo Millennio, these are orange clear wheels. On the real car, the whole wheel lights up. In fact, this will actually manifest itself as propulsion systems thanks to the Terzo Millennio featuring not one, but four electric motors, each of which will be housed within the dazzling light-up wheels. You might be wondering where the brakes will sit if the wheels are filled up with motors, but the Terzo Millennio doesn't need any discs or calipers as the motors themselves look after all the braking, which in turn allows them to recuperate some energy as well. 

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

As you can see, the rear tires stick out so far. That way, they've managed to make these same tires evocative of the wider rear tires of the actual car. Look at how wide those rear tires are and also how exposed they are. These are custom-made for this kit and they have some really meaty tires. Now this is a square stance kit meaning that the width of tires are exactly the same from front to back.

And an orange clear tube is mounted in front of the rear wheel, which makes the sides look more appealing.

Moving on to the rear, actually the back of this car is one of the coolest things I have ever seen.

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

The coolest feature, however, is the mid-rear mounted V-12 engine. This model car not only looks like the original Lamborghini Terzo Millennio, but also it has the addition here of a V-12 engine. I guess they sacrificed a bit of reality for functionality, which is actually awesome. That's probably one of my favorite bits.

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

I love how they've designed the engine here. You don't see any  engine covering there, so we can get a good look at what's inside. When you move the vehicle forward or backward, you can see the cam moving the pistons. It moves one piston at a time. And you can see here the piston coming up and down as well. That's really cool. 

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

Another thing that I really like is the spoiler mechanism. There's just a little knob just behind the right wheel that you turn and the spoiler adjusts itself. That is super nice. The rear wing of the actual car will be forever adjusting to achieve just the right amount of downforce. 

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

Underneath the spoiler, you will notice that there's a license plate with a special type of number on there. I'm not sure what it refers to. 

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

What you will notice as well is that the unique ‘T’ shape forms the taillights.

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

It's all open in the middle, so it looks like the rear end of a UFO from outer space.

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

On the bottom, just like the actulal car, it has got the huge diffuser  that sends airflow upwards to create downforce. It has it all.

Now, let us take a look at the interior. It's pretty simple but of nice design. Just have a look at the touches they've done in here with the stickers and pieces. So for example, again, we have the nice little logo on the steering wheel. 

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

And the steering wheel is also another thing that's functional. As you can see, we can turn the wheel right and left, so you can actually steer the car.

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

The actual car is quite a large car, but there are only two seats inside, in traditional Lamborghini form, so here in this model, we have one seat for your driver and the other for your passenger. 

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

Each seat has a nice headrest with the nice little logo. Two brown plates represent a cushion where you can see two black tiles with three grilles that hook on via two studs here and they represent a black embroidery over the cushion.They all look quite nice. 

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

Between those two seats is this little center console compartment. On the top of it, you can see there is a brown tile with three grilles and a black slope with four slots, indicating the transmission levers and a center console area where you can put stuff respectively. How interesting! 

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

Next up, I want to move on to a discussion of the exterior of this model car. The thing I like about this is that there's not any studs visible at all. It is a SNOT purist. SNOT is a toy brick builder term, which stands for “studs not on top” and is used to describe models that try to hide the classic studs with smooth tiles or unusual building techniques that put pieces sideways.

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

And then, I want to talk a little bit about the shapes and gouges throughout the exterior of it. Like the actual car, the design is crazy  and Lamborghini says everything is designed for some airflow and aerodynamics. Just look at the teardrop style cabin in the center of the car. On the real car, it will allow the airflow to come all the way back and around it. 

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

Just looking around the sides now, I can see the little air pass-throughs, for example, here behind the front wheel and here in front of the rear wheel. I guess they work on both sides of the real Lamborghini Terzo Millennio in terms of airflow through the car, but also in terms of design to keep it looking visually very attractive and dramatic. And as I mentioned earlier, they say the same thing about the splitter and the spoiler.

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

Last but not least, basically this model car feels very solid. The doors, for instance, feel very very solid. They are not going to break.

— Summary —

All in all, Nifeliz V14 Toy Car Model Building Kit is the rarest model car I have ever seen. It is small and functional as well as being realistic and that's what makes this one so special. In fact, it's like a masterful work of art. You can see a little bit of extra care went into shaping and sculpting things like the sloping windshield, the windows, the fenders and so on. It was the perfect balance. Everything was just right. 

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

Additionally, several parts on this 1:14 scale model are functional, which is a definite plus because you don't always get to see that in a model car of this size. The doors open and close, the pistons in the V-12 engine move, the steering wheel turns, the wheels roll, and the rear wing goes up and down.

Nifeliz V14 Mini Sports Car Compatible With  Lego

Furthermore, if you have a kid, girl or boy, that's into the cars, they will love this. This model is as futuristic as the real vehicle, so it will encourage their imagination. In addition to that, it is also solid and functional so that you can let a little kid play with that.
